Game 9 - If it were a child's play

The board position after Black queens with a check and white can play Nf1, Rf1 or Bf1 to save the check.

Anand played Nf1.

The evaluation line was expecting Bf1 and below are some possibilities with a few lines leading to a checkmate in favor of Anand.

If White had played, Bf1

 and black responds with Qxf6 because the impending R - > h4 threatens mate on h7 and black has to rescue its king from it

and if intead of Qxf6, if black plays Nxf6  White's gxf6, Qg7# wins for White.

But then if it were only a child's play! :)
